Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Serame Letsoaka has revealed the club has no interest in signing Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro despite missing out on Colin Mbesuma.

Majoro is widely expected to leave Pirates after being placed on the transfer list following a disappointing campaign last term in which he only scored one league goal.

Letsoaka has made no secret of his desire to add firepower to his squad, leading to speculation that Majoro was headed to Bloemfontein.

However, while he says the club is looking at a couple of options, he maintains that Majoro is not one of them.

"There are one or two players that we have to still finalise upfront, but Majoro - no, no comment about Majoro - he is not one of them, definitely," Letsoaka told reporters.

"I keep saying we still have to finance two players, but the set-back was Mbesuma because we were very close to signing him.

"At the last minute certain things didn't happen and we missed out on him, but we have to get somebody who will replace that signing."
